Westringia glabra linifolia Edna Walling Rosemary

Botanical Name: Common Names:
Westringia glabra linifolia Edna Walling Rosemary Violet Westringia, Native Rosemary, Coastal Rosemary, Coast Rosemary,
Native: Foliage Type:
Yes Evergreen
Plant Type: Plant Habit:
Hedging / Screening, Shrubs Dense, Shrub Like

Attractive but tough plants suitable for screening are in high demand and Edna Walling® Rosemary is perfectly placed to fill the ‘medium height’ niche. Such plants need to be able to bounce back from a bit of ‘rough and tough’ damage in utility areas and still look good. It has a soft dense grey-green habit and violet-lilac butterfly-attracting flowers through mid- year. Does well in cool temperate to sub tropical and semi-arid climates. Likes well drained clay or gravelly loams, neutral to low acid and low alkaline pH, moderately frost tolerant, and suits a near-coastal position too. While Edna Walling® Rosemary may be trimmed to produce a more formal effect, it can be used as a less formal shrub in the general landscape.
